DETROIT, Mich. – June 3, 2021 – Detroit has added new features to the Detroit Assurance suite of safety systems including enhanced and industry-first capabilities designed to improve the overall driver experience and keep drivers and the general public safer.
“We are focused on manufacturing the best trucks in the industry, and our customers tell us that there is nothing more critical than the safety features included in our Freightliner and Western Star trucks,” said David Carson, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Daimler Trucks North America. “The ongoing evolution of our Detroit Assurance offerings is based on our unwavering commitment to developing purposeful technologies and solutions that will help protect truck drivers, other motorists and pedestrians.”
Available for the Freightliner Cascadia and the Western Star 49X spec’d with a Detroit powertrain, the new Detroit Assurance features reduce driver strain and fatigue and can help reduce speed-related accidents. The features are:
“By providing drivers with tools such as Detroit Assurance, we help mitigate potential accidents, as well alleviate driver fatigue and strain, which will help drivers stay more aware and make their jobs a little bit easier,” said Carson.
The advantages to these advanced safety features are amplified by the full Detroit Assurance suite of safety systems, which includes access to the Detroit Connect portal. Detroit Connect provides fleets access to critical information on the performance of their vehicles such as vehicle location, fault codes, diagnostics and fuel performance. Detroit Connect also offers valuable safety insights into driver behavior and safety critical information when Detroit Assurance features are activated, such as providing a detailed event report when Active Lane Assist with Auto Stop brings the vehicle to a complete stop. With this information, fleets can intervene to help their drivers that require immediate assistance.
